(Item 4) School Board Candidate Update

Lideen indicated that he had a petition before him, and he passed out a copy to each board member. The board agreed to add a question that asked what type of involvement have you had in the school district, and to have the candidate introduce themselves at the beginning.

Lideen said the interviews would start at 6pm for the special board meeting on Thursday February 5th.

(Item 5) School Bus Purchase

Ladd requested the board to give him permission to go ahead with ordering a bus to have on line for the fall of 2004.

Borrell questioned if we could use a lift from an older bus into a newer bus. Ladd said that he would not recommend this because ours have been giving us problems.

There were no objections from the board members.

(Item 6) Doering motioned to adjourn the meeting at 9:00 p.m.; Weber and Schaible seconded; motion carries.

Respectfully submitted,

Al Doering, Clerk
